Recent License Requirements Make It Harder for Immigrants


Countless numbers of immigrants without documentation that are legally able to drive may find themselves unable to obtain driver license following Florida’s recent changes to the identification requirements that need to be met in order to get a license.

During the month of May, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles upped its requirements detailing what certain immigrants need to provide in order to receive their driver licenses. The new requirements make it especially hard for soon to be deported people to get a license.

People with pending deportation proceedings have been able to get a driver’s license prior to May 11 as long as they had a court record showing they had a potential hearing date. Currently, when applying for or renewing a visa (which may be valid for immigrants for up to four years) they need to present a valid passport that is not expired and an I-94 form, the federal document confirming that the persons entered the United States through legal means.
